An exhibition by Camile Smithwick
Dates: 1-30 February, 2020
Location: 5 Bold Place, Liverpool, L1 9DN

Camille Smithwick’s I Dream of Gottfried explores the dreams of Kaspar Hauser. The mysterious Kaspar Hauser was a teenage foundling who appeared, seemingly from nowhere, in Nuremberg in 1828. Speaking only one sentence in an unfamiliar dialect, unable to walk properly and eventually murdered, rumours abound about his true origin. The sculptures are symbolic interpretations of this dream life; an attempt to channel our experience of the unconscious that defies language.

An exhibition by Lidia Lidia
Dates: 1 – 31 October, 2019
Location: 5 Bold Place, Liverpool, L1 9DN

Lidia Lidia uses her trademark pink imagery of feminine stereotypes to confront the misogynistic submission of females worldwide. The gentle prettiness of popular female identity is subverted by a life-sized Barbie doll, bruised and performing multiple domestic chores, and flowers inscribed with facts about violence against women – highlighting the ubiquity of this oppression.

Sculpture and photography exploring plastic pollution. Using concrete-cast plastic containers and images on glossy advertising board, Beached gives a physical and psychological presence to our lightweight, disposable waste.  A concrete Coke bottle becomes a gravity-defying Zeppelin – revealing a disconnect between the object’s allure and the harm they cause.

“They stare in timeless wonderment through shop windows. Enraptured. Entranced. Enlightened.

Pain after pane after pane…. the glass fragments continue down the street…”
